CPS Week 2018 Program Overview

R13 - Palácio da Bolsa - Level 1 - Sala do Presidente

Palácio da Bolsa
President's Room - R13 (Level 1)
R. de Ferreira Borges, 4050-253 Porto
The oil paintings of this room, by Marques de Oliveira from 1890, present the traditional work of Roman civilization as thematic.

Worthwhile emphasizing, apart from the magnificent carved pavement with exotic woods of Brazilian and African origin, is the marble fireplace by the sculptor Teixeira Lopes, from which the lateral columns detach with feminine statues and in its interior, in wrought iron, we have allegories to the river Douro and the commerce.

Pavithra PrabhakarPavithra Prabhakar is an associate professor of computer science at the Kansas State University, where she holds the Peggy and Gary Edwards Chair in Engineering. She obtained her doctorate in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in 2011, from where she also obtained a masters in Applied Mathematics. She was a CMI (Center for Mathematics of Information) fellow at Caltech for the year 2011-12. She has been on the faculty of Kansas State University since 2015, and has previously held a faculty position at the IMDEA Software Institute in Madrid, Spain. Her main research interest is in the Formal Analysis of Cyber-Physical Systems, with emphasis on both theoretical and practical methods for verification and synthesis of hybrid control systems. She is the recipient of a Marie Curie Career Integration Grant from the European Union, an NSF CAREER Award and an ONR Young Investigator Award.

Richard M VoylesDr. Voyles has been a researcher, deployer, and advocate for robotics and cyber-physical systems most of his academic and professional life. He is currently professor of robotics in the Polytechnic Institute at Purdue University as well as the founding director of the Purdue Robotics Accelerator and was named a University Faculty Scholar in 2014. He previously served as Assistant Director for Robotics and Cyber-Physical Systems in the Office of Science and Technology Policy at the White House, in which he was instrumental in the expansion of the DARPA Robotics Challenge as an international cooperation, advocated for increased funding for robotics and IOT research, and pushed for "filling the gaps" in the educational continuum "from HS to MS," including Engineering Technology. Prior to this, he was lead Program Director at the U.S. National Science Foundation running the National Robotics Initiative, was one of the founding Program Directors of the Innovation Corps program, and a Program Director in the CPS Program.

Prof. Voyles' educational background includes the three pillars of robotics and IoT - electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and computer science - having received the B.S.E.E. from Purdue University in 1983, the M.S.M.S.E. from Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University in 1989, and the Ph.D. in Robotics from the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University in 1997. Prof. Voyles' prior appointments have included engineering positions in industry at Dart Controls, IBM, Integrated Systems, and Avanti Optics and tenured positions in Computer Science at the University of Minnesota and Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Denver. Dr. Voyles' research interests are in the areas of small, networked, resource-constrained robots and robot teams for urban search and rescue and surveillance, new generations of co-robots for intelligent, human-assistive tasks, such as nuclear clean-up, and intelligent meta-materials that combine sensing, computation and structure. He has founded or served on the boards of several start-ups and also served several non-profit groups with a focus on STEM education.
